Man! This summer has flown by...school started today! I only have two going now–one in 8th grade and one in 11th grade. Is that weird or what? I can’t believe how fast time just passes by. So many big moments in my life seem like they happened only yesterday...they did, didn’t they?
All this recollection and nostalgia has got me thinking about June’s Kit of the Month, "A Penny For Your Thoughts." (sorry the image isn't a good quality one right now)
This kit is absolutely brilliant...thought up by the amazing and super-talented Stacy Julian–the queen of scrapbooking those specific moments in your life through simple scrapbooks. With this kit, you even get a discount code to take her class from Big Picture Scrapbooking. If you’ve never had the opportunity to take a class from Stacy (and you’re missing something amazing!), this is the next best thing. I’ve known Stacy for several years now and she never ceases to amaze me with the way her brain works. This kit is ever-so clever! You take ten significant moments from different times in your life, find a penny to match the year of that moment, and then scrapbook about it! It even has a penny holder to hold those coins. Then there are these little fact cards about the People, Places, Prices and Picks during that time. Great color palette too! Oh, and I forgot to mention the darling penny tin that it comes in! Here's what Stacy and Candice Palmer did with it. I love how Candice turned the cards into a mini album!
So, since I’m all in a nostalgic mood, as well as just coming from a great vacation and all, I feel the need for a GIVEAWAY of two of these amazing kits! Just reply to this entry and you’ll get a chance to win one. I’ll randomly pick two people Thursday morning before leaving for another "historical" trip to Sheridan, Wyoming. I promise, even if you don’t win one and you buy this kit, you won’t be disappointed.
